|   Community News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno, State Senator Jacob Oliveira, and State Representatives Carlos Gonzalez and Brian Ashe joined with Rabbi Chaim Kosofsky, students from Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy (LYA) and our Jewish community to celebrate the annual lighting of the Menorah in the City of Springfield on Thursday, December 7th.

Mayor Sarno states, “As we do every year, we join together and gather with our Jewish community to celebrate and light the menorah at Court Square.  Due to the construction at Court Square Park, the menorah along with our Nativity Scene, will be moved down Court Street next to our old First Church and our Veteran monuments along Veterans Way.  Now more than ever we need to stand together in solidarity for mutual respect and peace as we celebrate the holiday seasons.”
